NCH’s staff of 19 board-certified, radiologists and interventional/neurointerventional radiologists, combined with our highly trained technologists and nurses, work hard to ensure both the accuracy of the tests and your comfort. We also make sure your doctor receives the results as quickly as possible.
A radiologist is a medical doctor (MD) who specializes in diagnosing and treating disease and injury by using medical imaging techniques. A radiologist has completed at least 13 years of training, including medical school, licensing, a four-year residency, and often a one- to two-year fellowship of specialized training, and is at the forefront of imaging technology.
An interventional radiologist is a medical doctor (MD) who specializes in minimally invasive, targeted treatments using imaging technology.
A neurointerventional radiologist is a medical doctor (MD) who specializes in using minimally invasive interventional techniques to treat patients with neurological symptoms. By threading catheters and tiny instruments through the patient’s blood vessels, a neurointerventional radiologist can assess and treat conditions for which surgery has traditionally been needed. This can reduce risk, pain and recovery time.
